Dress Code

Post 16 students do not have a formal uniform, as we want give students the chance to express themselves and enjoy a greater degree of freedom. However, students are given a list of acceptable clothing items as well as ones that are not permitted. This is because our Post 16 students are role models for lower school students and school is a professional environment. We have to prepare students for their eventual next steps where there is likely to be a basic expectation. We consult with our stake holders regularly in order to adapt this policy as necessary:

Unsuitable Dress:

  • Ripped jeans
  • Leggings worn as trousers
  • Offensive or obscene slogans/messages
  • Outdoor coats or jackets in the classroom
  • Hats/Headwear (unless for religious / cultural / medical reasons)
  • Underwear on show
  • Extreme hair colour
  • Play-suits
  • Flip-flops / sliders / high heels
  • Starpless dresses or tops
  • Short skirts / dresses / shorts (AHS reserves the right to determine what a suitable length is)
  • Tattoos should not be on display
  • Excessive jewellery or piercings
  • Low cut tops / cropped tops
    • no bare midriffs should be on display
